TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer Herb Block's cartoons are seldom subtle or clever. They are somewhat crude, always bold and blunt, and the impact Is massive. Unfortunately, much of this is lost when the cartoon is reduced to the dimensions of a postage stamp. The Bill of Rights commemorative is not, therefore, a particularly impressive item. It will likely contest for the most unpopular design of the year. Difficulties have also been encountered relative to the 1000th anniversary of Christianity in Poland design. It seems that the Polish government doesn't care for the eagle. The eagle wears a crown and is generally similar to the official symbol of both Imperial and Republican Poland. The Peoples' Republic, however, changed the bird in form and eliminated the crown. Our use of the old sumbol has therefore been protested and there is the possibility that mall bearing the stamp may not be admitted into the Polish state. What was intended as a friendly gesture with some domestic political considerations also involved is being viewed as a foul capitalistic, imperialistic plot. It is unfortunate that we ever got involved in the issue in the first place. It is also unfortunate that political systems exist that feel it necessary to repudiate their own patriots and heritage. - o - Circumstances limited my visits to collector centers during my academic visit to Rhode Island. I did get to the town of Wickford which is itself somewhat of an antique with many of the houses dating from the early 19th century and before. These original structures are all marked for the visitor's benefit. The occasion was a side walk art show with local and New England talent. It really was quite outstanding. One artist had some remarkable oil on black velvet works and there were many excellent oils dealing with ships and the sea coast. Very few of the "let me share my frustrations with you" type of material was present. One of the better quality antique shops of the area is located in the main business district. This is also the place to go for limited editions of modern English china, the collectors' item of tomorrow. An outstandingly beautiful cup and saucer set in burgundy now graces the collection of a local lady selected for her by her teenage son. In spite of some adult reservations concerning music and dress, the fact remains that our current teens still have a strong reserve of good taste. Very little Carnival was on display in any of the shops tho the Wickford shop did have a dark green bowl which was attractive in general design and in price. I will be returning to the same area in August for purely pleasure and fully Intend to cover the shops more adequately. - o - For the rest of this column, I would like to digress to two editorial type statements that recently appeared in another Algona publication. One was that frequently stated reference that a child at birth inherits $1,630 of debt as his per capita share of the Federal debt. It Is interesting to note that those who enjoy quoting this figure never provide any previous quotations. To do so would be to undermine their intended purpose. For the record, the per capita debt in 1945 was $1,905 and the debt total was 131% of the gross national product. The currant Federal debt stands at 60% of gross national product. I wonder how many families at present have debts that are only 60% of their yearly income? Why not also note that this same child also inherits his per capita share of all Federal assets? Federal debt figures are gross not net and the assets owned by the Federal government are considerable. We might also add that our new born child inherits American citizenship for which millions would gladly pay $1,630 and more if they had it and could, - o - The other statement was that Smart money goes to work at Home Federal Savings & Loan Association! a $300 raise for a person with a $7,000 income would result in a net after deductions of a mere $12. If you do your own tax return and come up with this result, run, don't walk, to the nearest tax expert. You are in need of help and his fee, incidentally, is deductible.

Most of this is fertile topsoil stolen from America's farmlands . . . from your farm and your neighbors'. In a single day at floodtime, the soil needed for the support of hundreds of families is lost forever. To stop this devastation requires the united efforts of all our people. To do their part of the job, farmers have organized soil conservation districts which cooperate with soil specialists. These districts include many farmers, each bf whom follows approved soil conservation methods in cropping, tillage and controlled drainage. This kind of cooperation makes erosion control programs work. Their success is more evidence that by working together, people can lick problems that are too big for each of them alone.
